Cultural Competence: A Journey to Improved Outcomes (Three-part webinar, March 25, 27, and 29)

This is a three-part videoconference via Zoom: March 25, 27, and 29

According to the American Psychological Association, one way to define cultural competence, is the ability to understand, appreciate and effectively interact with people from cultures or belief systems different from one's own. Cultural humility is foundational to this goal and is a lifelong process that can help increase provider self-awareness and promote person-centered approaches to effect equity in client/patient outcomes.

This interactive training invites learners to reflect on their cultural identities, history, and experiences that influence and often cultivate both providers and client/patient perspectives. Further, the content will bring the concepts of cultural humility and cultural competence together as essential components for culturally responsive care in meeting the needs of racial, ethnic, and other marginalized communities.

This training will be facilitated in three virtual (Zoom) sessions on March 25, 27, and 29, from 9:30am-1:30pm (12 hours), including self-study training assignments (3 hours), to total 15 hours of training. Participants must fully attend all of the sessions in order to receive a certificate of completion.
